Pours deep amber, nice head, great aroma of malt and spices. A tad bitter on the end but a great balance of flavors. Not exactly a winter warmer, but a good beer!

Brownish copper in color. Good malt backbone. Decent hop bitter finish.

A decent, but certainly not extraordinary, winter warmer.

Pours a deep cooper color into a pint glass from a bottle. Head fades and leaves some lacing.
You can taste the usual Christmas flavors which is better than the last beer ( see review of Rogue Santa special) not inspiring but better then what was on draft.
Not the worst Christmas beer out there.

This is a wonderful Christmas Ale. Beautiful color and foamy head, with a warm, delightful bready flavor. Sweet, smooth and flavorful.

12/20...pours light brown, touches of foam on top. Minor nose, caramel malts, bready. Tasty malt open, buried spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, and a tightly packed hop at the finish. Incongruous.
